Abstract

The Straw-like User Interface is a novel interface system that allows us to virtually experience the sensations of drinking. These sensations are created based on referencing sample data of actual pressure, vibration and sound produced by drinking from an ordinary straw attached to the system. This research of presenting virtual drinking sensations to the mouth and lips is the first attempted, and carries high academic expectations. Moreover, due to the high sensitivity of the mouth and lips if used as a sensor, it is possible to develop many unique interfaces and can facilitate an extension of research fields in both interactive arts and entertainment.
